ABSTRACT

Post COVID-19 Economy: 'A Case for the 'V''   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Overview: "The good news is that the number of new, confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the United States has, at least for now, peaked and appears to be falling. Stay-at-home mandates across the nation have been having their intended effect of limiting the spread of the virus beyond the initial surge. We are far less cognizant, however, of what the full scope of the economic shock will be, as economic statistics significantly lag public health stats. There is some data for March, but much of the month had passed before public health closures were widely mandated; hence they don't tell us much. April numbers won't start arriving until early May. Regardless, there is little doubt that these health mandated closures will cause a record decline in economic activity in the second quarter of the year."
